The Equine Report began as the regional magazine The Louisiana Equine Report. Available for free at tack and feed stores, showgrounds, veterinary clinics, rodeos, and racetracks, The Louisiana Equine Report soon became popular for its wide and in-depth coverage, whether the topic was parasites, dressage training, lameness research, Quarter Horse breeding, pasture management, riding for the handicapped, sliding stops, or the accomplishments of horse-loving youth. With a new national website, The Equine Report will continue to explore different breeds and disciplines, to report on cutting-edge equine science, to profile equestrian personalities, and to describe “best practices” in training our equine partners.
Our Mission Statement
The Equine Report vows to reach across disciplines and to unite us all in our love of horses, our joy in their accomplishments, and our support for the next generation of riders, trainers, caretakers, owners, and fans. The Equine Report wants to spread the word: the Horse Industry has political and economic power. And The Equine Report wants all to know that horse lovers embody American values: respect for nature, fair treatment of other beings, and zeal for excellence.

Barbara Newtown, feature writer, came to horses late, after a life of music, skiing, and sailing. Her horse-crazy husband George introduced her to dressage and eventing. When she isn’t interviewing rodeo queens, veterinarians, or jockeys, she helps George with the Newtown Farm Oldenburg breeding operation.
